I always like to try to mix and match recipes. I saw a mac and cheese recipe that looked so good but I wanted a healthier but still tasty version. I decided to saute some of my favorite veggies and mix them with whole wheat pasta and a sprinkle of cheese. It came out great! Here is the easy recipe.
1 bunch organic asparagus about 3 cups chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half
2 organic yellow squash chopped in cubes
1 green zucchini chopped in cubes
1 cup organic peas
1 lb organic whole wheat pasta (cooked)
1/2 cup parmigiano cheese
3-4 tbsp olive oil
Salt & Pepper
*Organic is not necessary
Saute Tomatoes in 1 tbsp of olive when soft add squash, zucchini, and asparagus. Drizzle 1tsp of olive oil and saute all until tender. Add peas. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix all veggies with pasta until combined. Mix in half of the cheese. Transfer from bowl to a rectangular baking dish that has been coated with olive oil. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake covered for 20 minute at 400 degrees. Remove foil and broil 2-3 minutes until golden on top. Mangiare!
